In 2009, 10,839 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly one-third (32%) of all traffic-related deaths in the United States. Driving fatalities are a national tragedy, yet a drunk driving fatality is also a personal tragedy for many. Long Island filmmaker G-Na Casazza has produced and directed a film that reminds us of the deep personal impact of each drunken driving fatality. The film, One Fatal Mistake, is a documentary that shows the impact of the loss of a beloved Grandmother killed by a drunk driver, through the eyes of six of her ten grandchildren ranging between 12-18 years of age. This documentary reveals how this tragedy emotionally scarred and forever changed these six children.
The film is a wonderful artistic creation, but also an act of love. G-Na Casazza is a hard-working, dedicated filmmaker who was faced with a tragedy caused by someone driving while impaired. She decided to turn this experience around and educate people of all ages on the dangers and often destructive consequences of driving while impaired.
Our office has contributed money to help sponsor this film and we want to promote it. We admire the endeavor undertaken by Ms. Casazza and think all will benefit from seeing this film.
